December has been the slowest month for me, although I said I would pick my reading rate back up, I'm not sure what happened this month. This year has been full of great books for me, albeit hard times too. Tomorrow I will post my Reading Resolution for next year, and hopefully I can stay on track, unless some other tragedies loom out of the darkness (my years seem to get worse and worse with each passing year.) I hope I can get a break this time. Books are always a great help in keeping the peace and sanity, right?
